Waterloo

Ever since Cindy and I went to see "Mamma Mia" the week before last when I was still in Orlando, I've had various songs stuck in my head and ever since last Thursday, when I found I was coming to this part of Iowa, "Waterloo" has been front and center. If you're familiar with ABBA, you'll understand why.

My schedule has been full and hectic since arriving here Sunday. Monday I worked 7am until 10:30pm and yesterday 7am until 11:30pm.

The hotel room is not much, (though it's infinitely much better than sleeping in a tent, which is always a possibility on these jobs) but it doesn't really matter since I'm barely here long enough to sleep and shower. I was fortunate enough to snag a top floor corner room, but the trade off for that is this magnificent view out my window.



Obviously, I keep the drapes closed most of the time.

Sunday I'll be moving to a hotel that is closer to the Cedar Falls office and should be there through the second week of October when I take a break to go camping in the mountains of North Carolina. In addition to being closer, the hotel is a nicer brand that I've stayed in before while in Atlanta last July.

The cold from Hell is finally abating; all that remains is just a nagging cough that usually makes itself known by waking me up through the short night.
